Dress Your Nest | Pantone Colors of 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity

A fashion-meets-interiors celebration of Pantone's colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. The more I take a look at these two hues, the more I'm loving them. To me, they are a perfect blend of uplifting, energizing freshness and peaceful calm. It's basically yoga for your eyeballs.

Meet Clothe Ohio: Your New Favorite Company + A Giveaway!

Here's a little not-so-secret secret about the blogging community: we get approached by companies about partnerships all the time. And while that's fun and flattering, it can be really tricky to know what brands are worth giving your stamp of approval. When I spoke to the folks at Clothe Ohio and found out more about this emerging local brand, however, those usual doubts flew right out the window. My only thoughts were YES! YES! YES! Where do I sign up?!

And I'm not the only one who's thrilled to throw my support to the brand. There's been major buzz among Ohio bloggers and all over social media. But in case you've missed all of this, you might be wondering, what's so special about Clothe Ohio? And the answer is simple: it's their mission.

Clothe Ohio is a brand of athletic/lounge wear for men, women, and children, but there's much more to this company than you see at face value. Clothe Ohio was created from a passion for giving back and with every order placed, they donate a t shirt or sweatshirt to an Ohioan in need through their partnerships with charitable organizations such as The Homeless Families Foundation.

Get the Look: Pajama Party

Who says fashion can't be comfortable? After a steamy day yesterday (a la derecho), all I could think of while styling this outfit was comfort, comfort, comfort! With a forgiving shape and print, not to mention plenty of room to breath, the pajama pants trend is a perfect option for lounging summer days. While this may seem like a look that only models can pull off, pajama-style pants, in the more tapered version below, can actually be flattering and elongating. A few notes of caution:

1. Stick with silk (or silk-like) woven fabrics and stay away from stretchy, jersey knits, which will up the frump factor into actual pajama levels.

2. Dress up the accessories- think high heels and clutches- to keep the look more Hepburn and less Hefner.

And my favorite thing about this look is that it can perfectly transition into cooler nights, and even right into fall, by adding a motorcycle jacket and swapping out the sandals for classic, pointed-toe pumps.
